You mention the Tomahawks out drew all the other teams in their division. One of those teams was the Philadelphia (formerly Aston, now Jamestown) Rebels. The Philadelphia Rebels drew only about 100-200 fans per game in the 2,500 seat Class of 23 Arena. They were promoted fairly heavily with radio ads, but I think the $15 price tag for seats was too steep for the level of play of the NAHL. I think their largest crowd was about 300, except for the one game they played at the Wells Fargo Center which drew about 1,800. The Rebels did a little better the previous two seasons in Aston, averaging about 400 per game, in the 1,000 seat Ice Works, with ticket prices a more reasonable $9. But you can see a Neumann NCAA division 3 game or Drexel ACHA for free, and the level of play of the NAHL is not significantly different from those levels. If you want to take the 45 minute to one hour drive to Princeton to see NCAA Division 1 hockey, the tickets are just $12.
